This antique Wilson Bohannan railroad switch lock is a real rare find. It has survived for over 140 years! It has authentic wear and patina that you only get from being this old (see pics). It has a patent date of June 25, '79 (1879) on it along with the name W. Bohannan and Brooklyn, New York. It also has its orignal key which has a unique curved end and it does work opening and closing easily. This is a real show piece with a lot of history to it. One can only imagine the stories it could tell if able. A wonderful and unique gift for any railroad enthusiast or memorabilla collector.

Size: 3 3/4" tall x 1 1/4" thick (at lock cover) and 2 1/2" wide. Chain is 10" long. Key is 2 3/8" long.
